wel i do love nokia a lot and im eyeing for this phone however nokia chose windows rather than android and super blab i dont know if they made the right choice...anyway come on......nokia shift to android now...and make it ice cream sandwich version just like htc....
First ive got this phone for about a month and all i can say is you dont need to flash and flash and flash roms/custom roms just like in android just to maximize the speed of your phone and to longer the battery life.
First things first, all i want in a phone is:
Responsive touch screen
Fast and stable OS
Longer batter life that would last for a day and half
Good email UI
Facebook (fb in people app is awesome)
fast typing in messaging, email and internet websites
8gb is enough for anything
I do have a galaxy SL and i flashed it every once in a while just to have a stable and fast phone plus longer battery life but i end up flashing and flashing and cant get what i need. Although s3 and other new high end phone has fast UI but high price.
I know that android is better than 610 but this phone satisfies all that ive been lookin for in a phone.
Instead of buying high end phone ranging $550 above I decided to buy this phone for $130 so i can buy android tablet or ipad that i can use for games and other entertaining apps.
Just think, you want high end phones with high specs and was very expensive but at the end of the day you will still use it as a phone.
Every phone has its own pros and cons so it depends on how you use it.
AnonD-59285, 19 Jun 2012No bluetooth file transfer? where's u'r brain nokia?
-I mean, i own u'r first symbian smartph... moreOh come on.....the later version of the phone has NFC, the technology which is expected to replace Bluetooth.
This makes the phone special because NFC at a low price is hard to find

Gasten, 20 Jun 2012no mem card for any WP.WP8 will have that capability.

Wait until WP8.
bino, 16 Jun 2012does nokia 610 has corning gorilla glass screen?Yes it does have gorilla glass. It's amazing! I know that because the newest dell laptop has it.
AnonD-59738, 19 Jun 2012no mem card slot for this phone no mem card for any WP.WP8 will have that capability.
8 GB of internal memory i think is decent for this phone so... I always conect my phone to pc by cable even if i have a memory card. I'm not a friend of nokia but i see no problem in not having a mem slot
AnonD-58551, 11 Jun 2012is this android phone?I think it is a good phone
This Phone is still not available in INDIA . Today Windows Phone 8 is going to be launched by Microsoft , and Nokia is way behind. I've been waiting for this phone .. already have 11000 cash with me to buy this.. but i think the wait is over. I finally give on you Nokia .. I am Heading to android . I still Love The WINDOWS OS .. its just awesum !! Nokia "be PUNCTUAL"
The phone is awesome but 1 problem is that the phone has no memory card slot
No bluetooth file transfer? where's u'r brain nokia?
-I mean, i own u'r first symbian smartphone: nokia 3650, i buy it in 2003, and there is bluetooth file transfer facility: we can exchange photo, mp3, video, jar/sis application/game, etc.
-Now is 2012, are u try to telling me that this phone which is worth 350-370 U$ doesn't have basic bluetooth file transfer facility just like the one u have before in 2003 nokia phone?
NICE JOKE NOKIA!! HAHAHAHA
I just swapped my 701 for a 610. I took a big risk on this coz I know that the 701 is miles apart from the 610 in terms of performance and acceptance. However I'm trying to look ahead coz Nokia is falling behind in terms of technology and sales and pretty soon they will phase out their famous Belle OS and go completely on Windows. Don't know if its a wise move or what but u have to ride with the times to stay in tune :)
